      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Discussion] Roberto Luongo Trade Thread 4.0

Recommended Posts

I've been trying to figure out who I'd want more, and I'm curious as to why you think Couturier fits better than B.Schenn? I know they're both great prospects but haven't seen them play much.

Whoops, already forgot :lol:

Clearly I meant Nonis.

Here's an idea, why don't they just give us JVR and keep Bozak and Kadri. They were gonna give us Schenn for him after all. Schenn got them JVR, so JVR could get them Luongo.

To me Brayden Schenn is a bigger Mike Richards, with possibly a higher offensive ceiling. Couturier fits a Ryan Kesler two way centre mold, but with much better playmaking ability. I don't know, how could you say no to EITHER of those?

if the rumors are true that burkie fell on his sword because he refused to deal gardiner for luongo (however unlikely that may be), and nonis is presumably willing to make that move, i hope gillis uses that leverage to up the offer from florida or elsewhere, leaving the leafs without a goalie yet again. that would be fun for me, burke getting fired for no reason and all.

Does the Lu deal get done by Saturday night? Training camp starts Sunday!

TO always over rates their players and prospects.

The big question is how Nonis views his GM role now and long term. HC seems to think he isn't there for the long term (a Burke man). Does he even have the authority to make a Lu deal or does that decision go up to the Board? Nonis probably thinks he might be cooked no matter what he does. He is young enough that another GM role will be in his future depending on what he does in TO. One shouldn't jump to conclusions I guess because Ferguson never got another GM position.

My conclusion is that Nonis will deal for Lu because making the playoffs is his only shot at staying a GM. Lu gives him that shot. He can sign FA's to fill out the front.

Absolutely laughable to see the talking heads on TSN and Sportsnet go on about the Burke firing. Have you ever seen a TO player or prospect who wasn't the 2nd coming of The Big M or Red Kelley? That's how far back you have to go to find talent!

We're not getting Gardiner. Nonis said himself on hockey central at noon that he would only trade young players for other young players.

Actually he only said Rielly and the HC crew added Gardiner. Then Nonis followed it up with he'd want a young player. Nonis, unlike Burke, knows what a veteran goaltender would bring to the Leafs. He saw it first hand how Lu changed the Canucks around.

Kadri, Bozak, 2nd

Weiss, Shore, 2nd

Or Couturier/ Schenn straight up??

The team who gets the best player in a trade wins, if it were up to me I would take Couturier or Schenn and run with it. In a year from now nobody will care that we could have got a higher "quantity" of assets and rentals ( Bozak, 2nd round picks) if couturier turns into our future 1st line centre.

... And... give Luongo eight games? 24/24 is an excellent plan until further notice.
